Ubisoft Readying Seven Wii U Games

Let's play the name game

Ubisoft's throwing its considerable weight behind Wii U with no fewer than seven games in development, CEO Yves Guillemot has revealed.

Speaking to investors (as reported by GamesIndustry.biz) Guillemot confirmed the publisher is a "very strong" supporter of Wii U, with five casual and two core titles in the works.

Guillemot didn't go into much more detail about which games fall into which camps, though he did point to Marvel Avengers: Battle for Earth as a title with considerable casual appeal.

Here's the Ubisoft Wii U line-up of confirmed games so far:

Killer Freaks from Outer Space
Rayman Legends
Assassin's Creed III
Marvel Avengers: Battle for Earth
Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Online

Strong rumours surround Your Shape, and Just Dance is practically a cast iron certainty.

It's worth noting Ubisoft isn't saying it'll launch all these games with Wii U, just that they're in development, so don't expect a Ubi overload come Q3.
